[laughter] the united states is very 0 supportive of efforts in the middle east to try to work out some of the challenges to the production and exporting of energy. and i think you know from having been in israel, israel has made some significant finds of natural gas off the coastline, and there's also the potential for such new energy sources off of cypress, off of lebanon, and we have been urging diplomatically that everybody work out their boundaries, that gets me back to one of the points i was making because there's often overlapping claimant -- -- claims and unless they're resolved stand in the way of the commercial exemployeation of whatever the reserves night be. it's in everyone's interest to try to make sure. everybody know where the boundaries are and people are able to let contracts that will be legally recognized in order to see what potential is available. similarly with respect to the pipeline, as you know, the pipeline fro

"the new york times" reports a contingent of more than 150 planners and other specialists is tasked with helping jordanian forces handle incoming syrian refugees, prepare for syria's potential loss of control over its chemical weapons, and respond should the turmoil in syria spread more widely throughout the middle east. the mission also reportedly has discussed contingency plans to insulate jordan from the conflict, with talks of a u.s.- backed buffer zone along the syria-toward a murdeborder. the u.s. military presence in jordan comes just as the jordanian monarchy is facing its largest protests since the start of the arab spring. thousands of jordanians marched in the capital demanding economic opportunities and democratic reforms. turkey forced a syrian passenger airplane to land in and confiscated its cargo is tensions between the two countries continue to rise. the airplane was traveling from moscow to the syrian city of damascus, and there were unconfirmed reports military supplies including

such as saudi arabia, uae and jordan, and in 2008 he added libya to the expanding arc of activity. putin's goals were fourfold. number one, demonstrate russia was again a major power in the middle east and the world. number two, gain -- for projects while selling sophisticated products like nuclear reactors and railway systems. number three, as the cost and difficulty of extracting russian oil and natural gas grew to gain joint ventures in oil and natural gas extraction with countries like saudi arabia, iran, uae, libya and iraq. and number four and certainly very important, to prevent the arab states from aiding the islamic resistance movements in the north caucuses that were beginning to spread through the rest of russia. but keeping good ties with the sunni alignment in egypt and jordan and the shia group of hezbollah was not easy, especially as tensions rose between the two groups. this was to be increasingly clear with the onset of the arab spring. now, when you look initially at russian concerns with the arab spring, a, it could spread to russia which suffered some of the same problems as
makers program. we have the chance to speak to jim jordan. and among the topics he talked about was that of libya. and the congressional investigations of the attack on the united states consulate in benghazi. he was of the oversight committee hearing this past week, in which he probed diplomatic security in libya. we will talk about that topic. but here is a bit from the news makers. >> the hearing made it clear that this quest to get to normalized security operations trumped security. politics trumped security. first of all, there are several things that stand out. it was september 11. it should be on high alert on that day. there were 230 -- security incidents as of may 13 months prior to the september 11 attacks on our consulate were the ambassador and three others were killed. 230. on the to 31, we will blamed on libya. you had repeated requests from the guys on the ground. the two guys to testify were on the ground for eight and nine months. it had been there eight and nine months. they repeatedly asked for additional help. and there were denied by people in washington, as

by barbara jordan and 1990's. i think the way to describe the american immigration system is, it is enormous. it represents something like one-third of the world's total immigration into one country with 7% of the world's population. it is enormous but terribly unbalanced. it is dominated by family ties and skills based immigration is an afterthought in the current system. that is the problem you're referring to. it is also off balance as an expedient. we have a dominance now in the skills based side and a dominance of temporary migration over permanent migration. that is not healthy, and that is why we get these kind of peculiar outcomes that he was talking about. the system is enormous. needs reform. it is not that we need more immigration. it is that we need to have a better balance within the immigration system. as far as who does better, i never thought i would say this, i must say. i spent many years living in britain and they had a hopeless immigration system, i thought, very badly administered, very badly thought through. they now probably have the most thoughtful analysis of skills

to the jordan/syria border and of course tensions between syria and turkey have been escalating. we're also looking at some of the fundamental data, the latest report from opec in their monthly report saying there will be ample supplies through 2013. we'll wait to see what the international energy agency and the u.s. energy information administration have to say in their monthly reports later this week. in terms of the gold price, that $17.60 to $17.65 level has been a key area of support and a lot of traders say there is consolidation here as we've seen a firmer dollar, not much news to move gold in one direction or another but they're looking for a big move, either to the 1800 level or perhaps to 1650, got to go one way or the other and those are the key points to watch. back to you, david. >> thanks very much, sharon epperson. we've been talking about china of late given this morning yum! results and alcoa in that conference call. i've mentioned a pronounced slowdown in the growth of asian exports and i'm not just talking china to u.s., although that's an important component, i'm also ta
violence erupting in jordan and, of course, the skirmishes that have continued for weeks between syria and turkey. all of this has led traders to focus not only on the possible disruption to production, but the oil transportation routes there. particularly going through syria to turkey and exported out there by the port of sehan. we're looking at the ct this could have on brent crude. it supported prices above that $110 a barrel mark, we are looking at crude falling below that level and more of an impact on what is happening here in the u.s. market spilling over into the brent crude market. in the u.s. here, we are continuing to watch for the restart of the keystone pipeline. we've just spoken to transcanada, that is supposed to happen some time today. it had been pushed back from the re-start of saturday. and, of course, it's been down since wednesday. this is 590,000 barrels per day. and that is something the traders are most focused on. and a big reason why wtis near the lows of the session. >> before i let you go, some investors may see some headlines today suggesting that gas pric
or is it going to be like iraq, jordan, bolivia, you know, the question answers itself. so the conditional probability that china will avoid the middle-income front is much higher than 50, 60 in three quarters when. so the notion that china i just don't think is likely at least if it reaches 50, 55% of the u.s. standards of living. yes, there is aging. it's a problem, but i think my number, my projection of 6.5% takes into account aging and as i said, there are lots of things china can do to overcome because it is very hard to avoid this problem. i forgot to mention that american boosters and u.s. boosters and china deniers say japan had this bubble, japan slowed down, china is in the same situation. and i say that that is fundamentally a long and how much because when china -- when japan reached that state in the late 80's and early 90's, japan was at the standard of living close to that. so, the scope for catch up to japan had was over. china is about 25%, so china japan and now what she is just plain wrong so it is related to the aging plant, so the demography's on the way that, but equ
, portugal? or will it be like jordan, poland, bolivia, kind of the question answers itself. so the conditional probability that china will avoid the middle income trap is much higher and one in three. it's 50, 60, three chords. i mean, southern ocean that china will fall in the middle income crowd i just don't think it's likely, at least until china reaches 50, 55% of your standard of living. roughly where korea is today. yes, there is 18. it's a problem but i think -- aging. as i said, there's lots of things that china can do to overcome because it's still very poor to avoid this problem. i forgot to mention that, you know, america booster, u.s. boosters and china always draw japan and algae and say, you know, japan had this bubble, japan slow down, china is same situation. i think that is fundamentally ironic analogy because when china -- when japan penn state in the late '80s, early nights, japan was at u.s. standard of living, or close to the. so the scope for ketchup japan had was over. china is still at about 25% so there's tremendous scope, so china, japan and algae is j
